The biggest surprise of a married couple’s lives came when it was discovered that they were expecting triplets.
They though they were done with surprises after a long laboring episode, but the doctor gave unexpectedly stunning news.
Katelyn Fugate lives in Mississippi with her parents, Kimberly and Craig Fugate. The couple was overjoyed to learn they were expecting again in 2013.
The Fugates then learned of further good news: they were going to have identical triplets.
Kimberly gave birth to the triplets on February 8, 2014, more than two months before her due date, after a difficult C-section.
But just as the mother from Mississippi was about to exhale in relief, the doctor cut her off with more sʜᴏᴄᴋɪɴɢ news. I see more legs, he said. Kimberly was shocked and in disbelief at what had occurred.
The family’s happiness was only multiplied by four when Kimberly’s babies were born the day before her 42nd birthday. It appears that there will be a second child.
The fourth child was unintentionally missed during the scan and was able to hide until the University of Mississippi Medical Center delivered her three siblings.
More legs, more feet—all that’s I heard when they took the three out, so I responded, “No. One surprise after another, Kimberly recalled.
Kimberly eventually gave birth to quadruplets: Kenleigh Rosa, Kristen Sue, Kayleigh Pearl, and Kelsey Roxanne.
The mother claimed that even though she gave birth to all four children at the same time, at 28 weeks, it still seemed unreal.
According to Kimberly, her premature babies weighed between two and two and a half pounds and required a lengthy hospital stay due to their developmental delays.
I felt that God would take care of them and let them live because I thought He had chosen me to be the mother of these quadruplets. I feel so fortunate seeing how far they have gone,” the mother remarked.
Near order to provide more space for the kids, the Fugates claimed they relocated from their two-bedroom trailer in Jayess, Mississippi, to a four-bedroom, double-wide mobile home.
Dr. James Bofill, professor of medicine at Mississippi Hospital, said that the chance of ᴄᴏɴᴄᴇɪᴠɪɴɢ identical quadruplets is shockingly rare almost one in 13 million and only 60 cases have been recorded in medical history.
Taking care of four babies is a lot of work, but luckily Kimberly had some help.
My 11-year-old daughter Katelyn is a huge help. In the evenings, she assists with feeding and bathing.
It aids with their sleep. He amuses them by playing with them. In case I need assistance, my family is also close by, she added.
Kimberly acknowledged that she is aware of her blessings and that she is constantly appreciative of her kids.
“I feel like the luckiest mother in the world; I’m really fortunate. The biggest surprise of my life has been having babies, and I can’t fathom living without them.
